CanWaCH Annual General Meeting 2021

23 November 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

CanWaCH is hosting our virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) and we hope to see you there!

Date: Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Time: 1:00 – 2:30 PM EST

Over the past year, COVID-19 has continued to disrupt and set back women, children and adolescents’ ability to realize their rights to health and wellbeing. The global pandemic has cast a spotlight on the depth and breadth of global health inequalities making it visible how human rights are severely impeded by an intersection of factors including gender, race, wealth, ability and geography.

Yet, in this changed and uncertain environment, we have continued to rely on one another by sharing knowledge and resources to address new but common challenges.

CanWaCH invites you to join us for our upcoming AGM for the opportunity to network with sector colleagues, join in the business meeting* and hear from Dr. Alaa Murabit, award-winning medical doctor, women’s rights advocate and United Nations High-Level Commissioner on Health, Employment & Economic Growth.


*Please note that only active CanWaCH member organizations have voting rights at the AGM. Pre-voting will be available and details will be sent to the member voting rep on file.  

CanWaCH also invites you to join us for a “Coffee with CanWaCH” networking session taking place prior to the AGM.

Date: Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST

Sector colleagues from across Canada are invited to connect with one another and have unique discussions for their position including heads of organizations and those working in gender, communications and public engagement, monitoring and evaluation, programming, and policy. Register today to save your spot!
